I cheated and basically used this as a guideline for a salad with what I had in my fridge and cupboard, but it was still incredible. For two people as a side dish to barbecued pork loin, I used...

FABULOUS!!! A big hit at the dinner party! I used candied pecans and had to substitute apples for the pears. A salad that could be served all year around!
